This is an excerpt from the Meet Koko introduction PSA. It introduces Project Koko, and features Dr. Penny Patterson, its principle investigator, describing an important insight she gained very shortly after beginning to work with Koko on the first ever interspecies communication study involving gorillas.
The success of project Koko is in large part due to the development of a close, loving and respectful bond with a member of another species, because of that species\' extraordinary similarity with our own.
